Bernadette's Songs for Nobodies
Bernadette Robinson is bringing her amazing array of voices back with a new season of her hit show Songs for Nobodies where she plays such legendary performers as Judy Garland, Edith Piaf and Patsy Cline.

Songs For Nobodies starring Bernadette Robinson, has received astonishing reviews from critics in both Sydney and Melbourne since it premiered in 2010 and a fanbase, which includes some of the most high profile Australians in the global arts fraternity including Geoffrey Rush, Barry Humphries, Fred Schepisi, Max Gillies, Jane Turner and Rhonda Burchmore.
Commissioned by the Melbourne Theatre Company’s Artistic director, Simon Phillips (Priscilla, Love Never Dies) as a star vehicle for the extraordinary actress and singer, Bernadette Robinson, this wonderful new play by Australia’s renowned playwright Joanna Murray–Smith, had its World Premiere in Melbourne in 2010 and quickly sold out its seven-week run, with similar success in Sydney in the same year.
In Songs For Nobodies, Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas touch the lives of five ordinary women and their stories magically combine in a most moving and uplifting theatrical event. Robinson seamlessly transforms, with phenomenal control of tone and accent, to bring to life each nobody and each legendary singer. Her voice shifts from the smoky blues of Billie Holiday to the thrilling soprano of Maria Callas, via Garland, Cline and Piaf, with consummate ease.
Director, Simon Philips said, “When the show opened in Melbourne people were, much to my delight, simply transfixed by it. Many had never heard of Bernadette Robinson, they felt like she was an unknown figure and they’d uncovered a genius. She always got a standing ovation at the end of every show and people were both amazed and exhilarated by what they saw.”
Everyone knows who Bernadette Robinson is now - her incredible performance will uplift you and stay with you long after you leave the theatre. Following the Melbourns shows, the show will tour to Sydney and Adelaide for limited seasons
‘Beyond virtuosity to the sublime.’
Songs For Nobodies is beautifully written, astutely directed and triumphantly performed. The Sydney Morning Herald
“The audience is on its feet with a standing ovation.”

“Robinson and her multiple personalities will simply dazzle”
"Bernadette's is a beautiful performance - that rare collision between actress and material that provides an astonishing showcase for her exquisite artistry ...with charm and fragility, melancholy, sassiness and beguiling warmth - and that divinechameleon voice. This show has high-octane fuel. I imagine that it would light a fuse in Manhattan!"
“Bernadette is a major talent and a spellbinder and Joanna Murray-Smith has woven an imaginative play - at times touching and hilarious around her extraordinarytalent. ”
